INCLUDING FULL 2009 AUDION HECATOMB VISUALS SHOW
In ancient Greek, "Hecatomb" is the word for "large-scale sacrifice or slaughter"; in Audion's universe, it's a live audio/visual experience like no other. Hecatomb is a dazzling and gorgeous assault of light that spins and twists into the ether. Musically, it's the new live Audion-a relentless percussive onslaught that will leave you breathless. A whirlwind of light and sound, Hecatomb was created by longtime Audion art director Will Calcutt and renowned artist Eno Henze.
Audion’s live Hecatomb show only showcases at select festivals and clubs. These events are powerful experiments in chaos and hypnotic depth, tearing down the walls of the live electronic-music experience.
